LEAMINGTON PEACE FESTIVAL YEARS 2008-10


LEAMINGTON PEACE FESTIVAL YEARS 2008-10

I really only started going along to the Peace Festival in 2008 after the purchase of my first DSLR camera, have always loved my music both live and recorded so with my camera there was only one thing to really specialise in **Live Music**
Music wise the festival was eclectic covering world, folk, choirs, country, reggae, punk and rock along side anything else you can think of all run by a team of wonderful volunteers.
Apart from the music an array of stalls filled the rest of the park with both local crafts, fair trade dealers and food from every part of the globe as well as dancers and magicians with plenty to keep the kids entertained and various Peace talks between the bands/artists.
With the Covid issue this year there is sadly no festival so I have picked out a few of my photos taken from the festivals of 2008, 2009, and 2010.
These include familiar local faces such as Coventry band ‘The Session', Kel Elliot and Shanade Morrow who make up ‘Bass, Birds & Beats' and ‘Matt Hernandez' along side bands from a little further away including ‘Freaky Karma' and ‘Paula Darwish and the Country and Eastern Band' as well as some of the volunteers in action.
Hopefully it will return next year.
